I have been involved in surgical education for more than 15 years and obtained a Masters Degree in Medical Education from the University of Calgary in 2009. I teach in a variety of settings in medical school and residency and have won national, university, faculty and departmental awards for innovation and leadership in education. I was selected as the John Provan Canadian Outstanding Surgical Educator for 2010/11 and was awarded the University of Alberta’s McCalla Professorship in 2010 for Research in Teaching. I am also the co-creator of the ‘Surgery 101’ podcast series. I have published 40 peer-reviewed papers and 120 peer-reviewed podcasts, and have given over 200 presentations at national and international meetings. In 2011, I was named as the University of Alberta’s first Tom Williams Endowed Chair in Surgical Education. In 2014, I became the first surgeon ever selected as a 3M National Teaching Fellow, and also received the University of Alberta’s Rutherford Award for Excellence in Teaching.
